About this event

 

The British Chamber of Commerce is pleased to invite you to attend an HR Business Forum: “Embracing Diversity: recognising and overcoming unconscious bias” on Tuesday 31 May 2016 at Clifford Chance, 10 boulevard G.D. Charlotte, L-1330 Luxembourg at 16:00.

 

 

 

Join us for an interactive workshop to exchange ideas and learn about best practices, tools and strategies for individuals, leaders and organizations wanting to build a more inclusive workplace. We will explore what kinds of unconscious bias exist, how they influence us, and why it matters.

Participants can deepen their understanding of a particular aspect of organizational unconscious bias by attending one of our workshops. Key findings from each group discussion will be presented back to the entire group following the sessions.

The event will be introduced by Sarah Battey, the HR Group subject matter expert and then followed by a breakout session, lasting about 1hr 15mins. 

After registering for the event please choose from one of the three workshops below by emailing info@bcc.lu.

  1. The Impact of UB in the Hiring Process (led by Claudia Neumeister): When can unconscious bias become an issue in the hiring process and how can you make adjustments to your processes to counteract it?
  2. UB and Talent Development (led by Jill Saville): What personal experiences have participants had with unconscious bias, and what can they learn from them to make their organizations more inclusive?
  3. UB and Leadership (led by Yvonne O’Reilly): How does unconscious bias show up in leadership behaviours and what are some simple strategies to build stronger and more inclusive leadership cultures?

The British Chamber wishes to thank Clifford Chance for generously sponsoring this event.
